OSI Industries is a global supplier of processed food. The food the processed is used in restaurants around the world. They also make the frozen processed food that many grocery stores sell as private label. It’s a company that has been around for many years, being established in 1909 by a German immigrant. The company’s big break came in 1955 when a new company started selling what they called fast food, McDonald’s. OSI Industries (then called Otto & Sons) was selected to be one of the fresh ground beef patty suppliers. They have been growing ever since.
Over the years OSI Industries has acquired several other companies. In 2016 they acquired two food processing company in Europe for example, Baho Foods (a Dutch firm) and Flagship Europe (a United Kingdom firm). They have a number of other subsidiaries they have acquired such as Amick Farms LLC, K&K Foods Ltd., Fair Oaks Farms LLC, and Select Ready Foods among others. All of the companies are managed by the headquarters in Aurora, Illinois, just outside of Chicago.
In 2016 Tyson Foods decided to close down one of their food processing facilities in Chicago. They issued layoff notices to the employees and prepared to shut operations down. With a growing need for more processing facilities, OSI International acquired the facility for $7.4 million. The employees were very happy because they were all offered jobs with OSI International with most of them taking up the offer. The facility is 200,000 square feet and plays a big role in the economy of the area in which it is situated.
At this former Tyson facility, their other facilities worldwide, and their offices, OSI International food company has many employees. In order to hire new employees they have a job section on their site and also post job openings on ZipRecruiter. There is a wide variety of positions available including regulatory specialist, corporate quality assurance vice president, administrative assistant, cash accountant, and maintenance mechanic. They offer competitive salaries and most people that start working at OSI Group end up spending the rest of their career at the company because of how well they are treated.
Being a privately held company, OSI Industries has been very successful at what they do. In 2016 the company had $6.1 billion in revenues. Forbes rated OSI Industries as the #58 largest private company in America. With a focus on selling food all around the world their success will likely continue.
